Unfortunately, this Sky News reporter getting videobombed brilliantly is all a big fake
But seriously, if only all their reports were like this…

THERE HAVE BEEN some classic news videobombs in the past, but this has to be one of the most creative yet.

Magicians Young and Strange saw an opportunity and took it, performing their act in the background of a Sky News report about NHS reform.

Can the health service fix THIS, eh?

Sky News have tweeted to say that the video in question is unfortunately not a real Sky News report.

The lesson here? Never trust illusionists.
